New Version Allows Customer Access to eNom TLD Program
KIRKLAND, Wash., Apr 04, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) --
eNom, Inc., the world's largest ICANN accredited wholesale registrar,
and WHMCS, a billing and support solutions company, today announced the
inclusion of eNom's new TLD program in the recently launched WHMCS
Version 5.2.3 software. This update will allow WHMCS users the unique
opportunity to participate in all aspects of the initial phases of the
new TLD launch, including the Sunrise and Landrush periods.
"We are an advocate and true believer in the
introduction of new TLDs, as it will change how the world uses the Web,"
said Aaron Phillips, vice president of business development for WHMCS.
"Our partnership with eNom demonstrates our commitment to be at the
forefront of this new digital endeavor."
Today's announcement is the result of a long
collaboration between eNom and WHMCS in raising the visibility of new
TLDs to the sizeable number of customers using both companies'
solutions. In November 2012, the companies announced a New-TLD-WHMCS
add-on available to all WHMCS customers already on the eNom platform.
With the release of 5.2.3, all WHMCS customers are now able to simply
integrate and oversee the entire new TLD process - from supporting the
trademark windows to granting access to new domain extensions the exact
minute they go live.
"No matter who you are, as long as you're a WHMCS
customer you can very easily participate in this historic event," said
Chris Sheridan, vice president of business development for eNom. "We
have made significant technology enhancements to ensure that our
resellers have access to participating in what we believe will be a very
lucrative opportunity for them with the launch of new domain
extensions. No other registrar has executed a comparable initiative,
establishing eNom as an essential partner for organizations interested
in the innovative gTLD market."
eNom is building tools and services to help its
partners take advantage of the availability of new TLDs. eNom is rolling
out new modules to help customers take orders for the Sunrise, Landrush
and General Availability periods of TLD launches occurring in the
months ahead. These modules are powered by the robust and comprehensive
eNom technology platform, which supports over 15M domain names and 8,800
resellers. The first module available is the new gTLD Watchlist, which
captures expressions of interest from customers to drive leads and
revenue associated with new domain name extensions.
eNom, Inc., is the world's largest ICANN accredited
wholesale domain name registrar. A part of the Demand Media family of
